Here, we take a closer look at this Saturday afternoon's Sky Bet League One clash between Walsall and Fleetwood Town.
Don't forget to join us on Twitter, we're @BescotBanter, where we'll bring you all the matchday build up and in-game updates as the Saddlers look to build upon last weekend's draw with Burton Albion.

Walsall Latest
The Saddlers arrive at this weekend's clash on the back of last weekend's draw with Burton Albion and in need of a positive result if they are to maintain their advantage over the sides currently sitting in the relegation zone.

After suffering five defeats on the bounce Dean Keates' side have taken four points from their last six and will be hoping for a couple of favourable results as they look to edge further away from the danger-zone.

Top-scorer Andy Cook remains on the sidelines as he reaches the second game of his three game suspension.

Striker Morgan Ferrier has been suffering from a hamstring injury over recent weeks and continues to work with the medical department in a bid towards making a return to action.

Centre back Kory Roberts (broken leg) and midfielder Adam Chambers (foot) also remain out of action with no set date for a return.

Opposition News
Joey Barton's Fleetwood Town sit 10th in the table, just six points off the coveted Play-Off places, and arrive at kick-off on the back of a one-all draw with relegation threatened Gillingham, having won three of their last five league outings.

On the injury front, Ross Wallace is available again after the midfielder completed a two-game suspension. However, James Wallace is out with a back injury, with Ashley Nadesan managing a hamstring issue over recent weeks.

Man in the Middle
Tyne and Wear-based Eddie Ilderton will be the man in the middle, with Ravel Cheosiaua and Peter Gooch set to act as assistant referees, whilst Wade Smith will act as Fourth Official.
